From 14 to 20 January 2019, LivingKitchen will present the future of kitchens in parallel to imm cologne in Cologne. The industry will have a chance to view tomorrow’s kitchens across three halls at Koelnmesse, where 200 exhibitors from 21 countries will gather to present their new launches and innovations alongside sector trends.
The kitchen has always played a vital social role. It is where we cook, eat, chat and celebrate. “The kitchen is the soul of the home,” as Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli puts it. But what will tomorrow’s kitchen design look like? LivingKitchen will provide a glimpse of the kitchens of the future with its three themed showcases.
What applications are there for smart home technology in the kitchen? How much time and money will it save, and what additional benefits will it offer? How can intelligent technology assist people when they are cooking and baking?
Taking the status quo as its starting point, LivingKitchen will explore the kitchen’s technological future. Visitors will be able to explore technological developments and the impact they will have on our lives across 600 square metres of exhibition space in Hall 4.1.
Alfredo Häberli’s interpretation of tomorrow’s kitchen will be on display at the Future Design showcase in Hall 4.2. The designer is staging a holistic installation recreating a home with the kitchen as its centrepiece. His vision is a forum for technological innovations, modern product design and materials.
Filled with sensory appeal, the space meets both social and personal needs. For visitors to LivingKitchen, this is a chance to discover kitchen furnishings and appliances via a combination of real experiences and virtual interactions in augmented reality.
The question is not just how we will cook tomorrow, but what we will cook. Future Foodstyles in Hall 5.2 focuses on lifestyles. The event will reflect social developments and present new directions in cooking and nutrition in captivating showcases.
From convenience cooking to creative cooking, curated cooking and even cooking from scratch, the installations and presentations will inform visitors about the latest food and nutrition trends.
